On the proficiency levels A1, A2, B1, and B2, a textbook is used.
It takes approximately 2 months (eight weeks) to reach the proficiency levels A1, A2, or B1. For the B2 level, 2 1/2 to 3 months (ten to twelve weeks) are required.
From the B2 level onwards, the teachers also use authentic, didactically prepared materials.
The lessons are organized on the basis of the four language skills (Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Writing, Speaking), with additional grammar studies.
The levels listed above are to be understood as the levels students will have attained after the course, not the levels required to start the course (thus, in order to begin A1.a, a student does not need any knowledge of German).
By completing a course, a student fulfills all requirements needed for taking part in the following course on the next level.
In order to obtain a certificate of attendance, a student must not miss more than 20% of the lessons.
As a rule, our courses have no more than 18 participants.
A lesson is 45 minutes.
